Editorial Board

1. In the case of multi-authorship, the editorial board of Studia Iuridica Lublinensia requires that the contribution of individual authors to the text be specified. In such a situation, the affiliation, percentage of the creative contribution to the paper should be specified for each author. It is necessary to identify the author of the concept, assumptions and methods used in the development of the publication.

Guest Authorship is understood by the editorial board as all situations in which the author's contribution is actually negligible or non-existent, but he or she is still identified as the author or co-author of the publication.
